As you may be aware I do not like Ray Comfort. In fact, I’ve been considering put a post up about how Ray Comfort is one of the meanest, deceitful, bigoted and hypocritical defenders of the Christian faith I’ve come across in a long time.
Well, it looks like I can scrap that idea because the Raytractors have come up with a perfect description of the pile of hate that is Ray Comfort.
It’s a 12 step starter kit for newbie Christian bigots who aren’t quite sure how to go about pestering atheists without revealing their utter contempt for atheists.
- The key point to remember when dealing with atheists is this: Do not, under any circumstances whatsoever, admit the possibility that they are right. Your objective here is not to arrive at the truth, but to serve God and to win the debate (not necessarily in that order), and you’ll do neither if you give any ground to the atheist. Even if you’re doubting, even if you know for a fact that the atheists are right, don’t you dare admit it.
- The only necessary yardstick for measuring truth is whether it contradicts what the atheists say. For instance, if a scientific theory confirms atheism, then it is stupid, boneheaded, and even demonic — but if it disconfirms atheism, then it is intelligent, and the brave and faithful scientist who invented it should be applauded.
- Sometimes you may lose track of your previous statements, and the atheist will accuse you of contradicting yourself. But as long as you are contradicting the atheist, it stands to reason that you will always be correct. Remember, when dealing with atheists, you are absolved of all culpability, both intellectual and moral, for what you say.
I insist that you go read the whole list now. They cover everything that makes Ray Comfort the master of Christian bigots that he is.
